Chadwick Boseman passed away almost three months ago, and on Sunday, November 29 would have been his 44th birthday.
Marvel did it’s best to honor him. With efforts like changing the opening Marvel logo of the only solo he got to make, Black Panther, into an all-T’Challa affair.
Including many colleagues from Marvel and elsewhere, Family and friends honored the late actor by filling social media with commemorations on what would have been a big day.
Chadwick’s brother, Kevin Boseman, didn’t refer to him by name, but it was clear what his post was referring to. It had an image of white flowers, with the caption “Today is a good day to give someone their flowers”
Fellow Black Panther cast member Lupita Nyong’o and fellow Avenger Mark Ruffalo, who appeared with him in Infinity War and Endgame, also paid tribute.
Viola Davis, who can soon be soon alongside him in the August Wilson adaptation Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, wrote, “Happy birthday in Heaven, Chadwick! You are still so alive to me!! I love you.”
Boseman’s alma mater, Howard University, one of America’s first historically black universities.
You, meanwhile, can honor him by watching some of his great work. Like, let’s say, his hilarious appearance as T’Challa on SNL’s “Black Jeopardy!”
